Subject: Jack Straw is the Last Straw
Great quality up to Jack Straw, then the singers left the stage, apparently.
Reviewer: BobSmokes - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - October 27, 2012
Subject: Best Version
This is by far the best version of this show on archive. The pitch off in the other copies.

Charlie Miller knows his stuff, look for his name, and it will be a quality recording.
Reviewer: jerlouvis - - May 20, 2012
Subject: Little sense
Explaining digital compression to Charlie Miller seems to be the epitome of little sense,commenting on the quality of one these transfers with no knowledge of the source material and what went into the final product is just ignorant.

only one more??? RAPTUROUS
Reviewer: Little Sense - favoritefavoritefavorite - May 19, 2011
Subject: What type of compression?
This sounds overly compressed to me. The drums are pumping like too much digital compression was applied....makes it hard to listen to. I've noticed this on quite a few of the older SBD's...go real easy on the compression, it is just supposed to be a very light effect unless you are trying for some wild Beatles like studio effects.

Great Music for sure...
Reviewer: CosmicGeordie - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - August 12, 2010
Subject: Such a great show
In spite of any and all technical flaws, the energy of this show is outstanding. The band and the awesome crowd are clearly feeding off of each other. This is a prime example of what made this a peak era for the band. Jerry even chimes in to say goodnight at the end. Stop and savor this show with the highlights in mind that are mentioned by the other reviewers. So good!

This show rocks alla way thru.
Reviewer: Cliff Hucker - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - March 27, 2010
Subject: It isnt just exacty perfect, but does that really matter?
The vocal drop-outs remain, and there are still some very minor pitch issues, but this is a significant upgrade of this classic show.

In spite of Donna's horrendous screaming, this is without a doubt among the very best performances of 1974, and clearly a prime candidate for an official release. (99 pts)
